We recommend contacting a medical professional under the following circumstances:
Of course, whenever you have questions or are uncertain it is advisable to get in contact with a medical professional.
You should contact a medical professional if you recognise any signs of infection. This is not only the occurrence of pus but also swelling, redness, heat, pain, itching or burning. In case of infection the wound will need medical care and special medical treatment.
If you have very sensitive skin we recommend using the Elastoplast Sensitive products. These plasters are especially developed for sensitive skin and are very skin friendly and hypoallergenic.
Properly bandaging a wound is often about securing dressing and gauze in place to contain fluids and stave off infection. Wounds on flat surfaces such as the forearm or thigh can be bandaged with a simple firm wraparound technique.
Wounds on and around knees, elbows and other moving joints are a little trickier to keep in place. Contacting your joint as far as you can without pain, wrap the bandage firmly above and below the joint area. Wrap the cloth with opposite ends crossing, over the joint and dressing, and secure firmly in place.
